I don't know what a "planet" is, but I'm assuming it's just a collection 
of articles/blog postings/whatever else one can think of about openbox?

I'm not sure what drugs inspired this paragraph, but you may want to 
stop using them. :)

Those on this list are few, while openbox followers are.. less-few.  So 
if this were to go anywhere, you'd need to appeal to the entire openbox 
audience, which would mean support from Mikachu to use the page.

Anything that gets more people working on it is something I'll endorse.

Why would a donkey need to go to the beach?  I'm not sure what kind of 
workings actually go into creating a 'planet,' but if you require any 
PHP or XHTML assistance, don't hesitate to ask.

This sentence didn't make much sense to me, but I'm assuming that you 
just want a collection of RSS feeds?

I'll do just that.
